Re: Placement for sons

Hi Julie and HOD mamas! I am still needing some help please. :shock: I feel like Bigger is perfect placement for BW, but now I'm questioning my choice about BJ, my 6 yo. I've read over the samples online, and though the left side is a great fit and he could fit well into the LHFHG guide, he places a...

Re: Placement for sons

Thank you Jennymommy! I've been looking at where my boys would place for next year, and BLHFHG and Preparing would be perfect for both of them. So LHFHG and BHFHG seem to be the perfect fit for them both right now. I also found Carrie's post about using AO in her first years, and that was such a hel...

Placement for sons

Hi! I would love some advice on where to place my sons. Here's a little background: BJ is almost 7 & 1st grade, and is in Singapore math 1B. He is in Rod and Staff phonics grade 1. We are also using Explode the Code. He can form his manuscript letters, read 3-4 letter words and write words by dictat...

Re: Bridging the Storytime Gap Between Guides

I agree with the previous ladies that acquiring more Burgess books is a great idea! That's a huge reason why I chose HOD, was b/c they use those books. Many are free for e-readers, if you have one. We plan to read through the Burgess Bird book and do a study on birds, which is really sweet for this ...

Nature study question

I am new to HOD and plan to use BLHFHG this next year. I love CM and I have the Handbook of Nature Study and I'm wondering if anyone has incorporated this book into HOD or if it is used in the later guides at all? Or is nature study already incorporated with the One Small Square books? Right now we ...

Re: Do I need a schoolroom with HOD?

We have a rental house and are blessed with space for a schoolroom, in our finished out attic. Granted, most adults bonk their head up there, but it's perfect for my boys. We have circle time: Bible verses, song time, puppet time and calendar on the rug on the floor. (my boys love this, so we do it)...

Re: Need help placing for K & 2nd

WOW! Thank you SO much for all this wonderful help! After reading both your replies, I think for sure my 4yo will be perfectly placed in LHFHG. I will start out normal pace and then slow it down if I need to....he will be 5 in a few weeks. I think he will enjoy having his own K program instead of ta...

Need help placing for K & 2nd

God keeps bringing me back to HOD! So I've chosen to obey, and I need help placing my 2 boys, please. First is my almost 5yo DS. He has slowly been working through MFWK. He is not reading yet, as we haven't really delved into phonics. I am holding off for a bit until the fall probably. He can write ...
